Okanagan Film Commission enjoys best year ever

Okanagan Film Commission enjoys best year ever | JMG Publicist |

Entertainment companies left behind an estimated $14.5 million in the Okanagan in 2013, according to the fresh statistics from the region’s film commission.


Only about $455,000 was spent in the South Okanagan-Similkameen, but that still marks a tremendous return on investment during what one of the commission’s leaders claimed was an off-year in this area.


“In years past, the South (Okanagan) has gotten the lion’s share of movies,” said Andrew Jakubeit, a Penticton city councillor who sits on the board of the Okanagan Film Commission.

“It ebbs and flows. Osoyoos still got, I think, three movies and two TV series done. Summerland and Penticton got little parts of a movie. We just didn’t get the big, glorious Hollywood movies last year.”


Jakubeit also sits on the board of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, which last year contributed $30,000 to the film commission’s $217,000 budget.


The RDOS has included in its 2014 draft budget another $30,000 for the commission.


“It’s the one form of regional economic development that we all seem to agree on, and has shown a proven track record of being effective (at developing) a growing, clean industry,” said Jakubeit.


Film commissioner Jon Summerland, who presented a year-end report last week to the RDOS board, said the highlight of 2013 was an estimated $3.3-million spent by Disney Movies, which shot parts of Tomorrowland in the North Okanagan.


The film, due out in 2015, stars George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, who were supported by a 300-member crew that was in the Enderby area for the better part of a month.
